Guys don't make passes...

I have worn contacts for as long as I can remember.  I started to need eyeglasses in college when all that reading took its toll on my eyesight.  I only needed them for reading then but, as the years passed, I started to need them for distance, too.  I didn't want to walk around like this:




But, being the vain yet insecure young woman, I could not fathom wearing nerd glasses.  





You know the old saying?  Guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses.  I couldn't risk it.

Plus, I had never seen a pair of prescription glasses that were my style...you know: cute, sassy, with just a touch of attitude.  You just couldn't find them back then.  So, I got contacts and loved them...except when I went somewhere overnight and forgot my case and my solution and had to put them in a Dixie cup on the bathroom counter and then forgot that's what was in the Dixie cup and drank them with my Tylenol.  Oh, and when I got an eyelash or piece of dust under one of them - OMG! the pain?  unbearable!  Or when I had a few too many happy drinks and forgot they were in my eyes and slept in them - OUCH!  I can honestly say I know what sandpaper feels like on my corneas!  But I have lived with them happily now for more than a few years. 

But, now, there are such cute, stylish, sassy eyeglass frames out there to choose from.  And lots of cute stylish, sassy women out there who wear them...




I might just have to order some new glasses to wear instead of my contacts when I am feeling especially sassy.  Plus, Bubba thinks I look secksy in them!
